The career of a chamber ensemble very often begins with success in an international music competition. We are aware of the responsibility that comes with our task and of the trust that young artists place in us.
The competition was initiated in 1997, when the city of Gdańsk celebrated its 1000th anniversary, on the day that was exactly 100 years after Johannes Brahms’ death. The works of the composer present timeless artistic value and are among the most important in all of the chamber literature.
We are waiting for musical personalities who will show the beauty of chamber music played in a spirit of partnership at the highest level and who will evoke the emotions of this music in the audience. We offer an international Jury of eminent authorities, a transparent evaluation system, consultations with the jurors after each stage and a prize pool of 17.500 €.
